    Technical analysis and trading recommendation for USDX and USD/JPY for April 24, 2015

    In April, weak data on PMI indicated slower growth momentum for the US manufacturing sector, with production volumes and new jobs both expanding at weaker rates compared to the previous month. This contributed to a fall in the headline seasonally adjusted Markit Flash US Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) to 54.2 in April from 55.7 in March.

    In the week ending April 18, advanced figures for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 295,000, showing an increase of 1,000 from the previous week's unrevised level of 294,000.

    The soft US data pushed the greenback to retest the 50Dsma. This is the fourth time when the USDX puts support at 50Dsma to the test. The USDX has been consolidating at 20Dsma finally ended with negative bias. The index is likely to make a double top between 98.46 and 98.43. Support is found at 97.00.
